The best way to weaken and bleed the people? The answer is simple and tested for centuries. To weaken the people — it must be crushed, cut into pieces and convince formed part of what they are separate, self-reliance, on their own, even hostile nations.
History knows of Serbia — Serbs, Croats, Bosnians, Montenegrins, crushing the Germans — the Austrians and Germans … These divisions were accompanied by state fragmentation and weakening the power of the great European nations. Bitter experience of a divided nation and we have, Russian. In the middle of the XIX century, we have blithely accepted as beneficial to the Poles, Germans, Jews, the idea of splitting into three separate Russian "people" — Russian, Ukrainians and Belarusians. Souped peoples — Ukrainians and Belarusians — hurried to create a separate history from the Russian people. In the separatist Ukrainian textbooks 20-ies of the XX century, Ukrainians took its origin from the "ancient ukrov." Ukrainians and Belarusians made their own literary languages — Ukrainian and Belarusian, who imitated the Polish literary models, although at that time the Little Russian and Belarusian dialects of the Russian language, that's what they are called in the dictionary. In Dahl, differed from the Russian literary language, dialects of Smolensk and Vologda, and linguists to this day is not on the maps of clear boundaries between dialects Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian peoples. Folk language verse proves their relationship, but Well Ukrainian literary language, in contrast, seeks to cut off the Ukrainians of Russian descent. Outstanding research Slavist Academician NI Tolstoy convincingly argue that the literary Ukrainian — artificial tumor, a third of their Germanism, German words, a third — of Polonism, words of Polish, and a third — of barbarisms, adverbs villagers Ukraine.
Why did you break up one Russian people, destroy its integrity? In Austria in the XIX century were many Orthodox Slavs who called themselves Russian or Ruthenians. As subjects of Austrian Emperor, they realized his involvement with the Russian people, which is very bothered by the Austrian authorities. Well, as you can put up with the Austrian authorities to the situation in Galicia, where the Russian huts on the walls certainly two portraits — Austrian Emperor and the Russian Tsar, and the question about the meaning of portraits, Ruthenian peasant would reply, "It is His Majesty the Emperor of Austria, and it is our Russian father King. " Austrians on their lands and the Poles, whose territory was then part of the Russian Empire and were also heavily populated Russian, had to get rid of the Russian "fifth column" within its own limits. And the work in full swing. The idea of remaking Russian in "schiryh Ukrainians" was generously funded by the Austrian government. In the city of Lviv, then part of the Austrian historian MS Hrushevsky wrote "History of Ukraine-Rus', where Russian princes Vladimir Svyatoslavich, Yaroslav the Wise, Vladimir Monomakh of named Ukrainian princes, writers Nikolai Gogol and Kostomarov began to call the great Ukrainian writers and their works translated into Ukrainian, which in turn was created from the very Polonism, Germanism and barbarisms, so that in no case was not like the Russian literary language. Translations of these looked pretty wild. For example, Shakespeare's Hamlet, the phrase: "To be or not to be: that is the question?" In the so-called literary Ukrainian translation Staritskogo was unusual for a noble prince of Denmark marketplace swagger: "Buta no butts chi: Axis zakovyka something?"
At first, the king's power in Russia did not take seriously these seemed innocent amusements liberal Ukrainian intelligentsia, instigated the Austrians and Poles to self-reliance, the authorities turned a blind eye to the deliberate fanning resentment malorusov to Great Russians for what they call themselves great Russ, and their malorusov — small. But the offense, as a contagious disease, become ingrained in the minds of many Ukrainians, readily rejected his Russian name due to the fact that it is small, Russian, and took himself a national name in honor of Ukraine — the edge of Russia.
That's how the idea of a malicious, merely verbal game started with the name of the Russian national, was able to divide and weaken the single people, engender mutual nepryazn at half-brothers. And how much effort is now needed, what a tremendous uphill nepryazni and lies to subvert, to overcome this harmful idea, and with it, the artificial division into three Russian "East Slavic people" — Russian, Ukrainians and Belarusians.
Now, at last, has been robust scientific explanation naming Russia — Great, Little and White. According to academic research, ON Trubacheva, the name of Great Russia is no self-aggrandizement to other countries, other people do not express. As the word is paired with the UK mainland Brittany — ancient colonization of the island was there, so the name of the Great Russia is paired with the name of Russia, especially in ancient times is the domain of Kiev, where the development of the Russian lands went to the north and east. This is a typical case of naming colonized lands term Great, so in history known not only Britain but also the Great Greece, Wielkopolska and Great Moravia, these territories were once mastered from parent centers — Brittany, Greece, Poland and Moravia. That's why next to the Great Rus appeared Russ Little — Little Russia, the name of a small, similar to the current native land, has always made sense to the original Rus, maternal hearth around which formed Great Russia. And no humiliation Ukrainians in this title is not, as there is no chauvinism in the naming of the Great-Great. Long retain traces prozyvaniya current Russian Ukrainians, still in the far west of Ukraine there is an area that is still called Carpathian Ruthenia, and the Poles, many efforts to attach to malorusy were called Ukrainians, in their environment, until recently the word signified Russia Ukraine. So we called the Great and Little Russia there are objective signs of broad migration of the Russian people, the development of Russian certificate of huge spaces, and not as a sign of our people are not typical arrogance and boasting.
Not pose imaginary grievances, however, points to the ancient unity of the Russian people and the name of White Russia — Belarus. This name, as shown by the latest academic research, ON Trubacheva, is part of an ancient system of color terms of the world. In this system, the northern part of the country used to call black (and preserved in the history of the naming of the north-western part of Russia, Black Russia), red (in Old Russian with pure) denotes the southern part of the country (known in the annals of Hearts Rus), and was known as a white western Russia . In the system of the ancient color terms of the world, according to the reconstruction, was the name for the eastern part — Blue or Blue Russ. But it should be in the written stories were found. And here is preserved to this day the name of White Russia shows that this is only the western part of the great Russian land — part of, not something separate and independent.
Even a little attention to these issues dispel mutual insults and disagreements. But someone very much that we, the Russian brothers still were welded together. Say good-natured mutual nicknames that were given to Ukrainian Russian, and Russian Ukrainians, as they were given Vyatskaya numskulls, Perm, but who only was given. Russian Ukrainians called Muscovites and Katsap. Well, what's offensive? As they say, call me a pot, but do not put in the oven! Moskal — only Muscovite. In Ukraine, they called everyone who did not come out with the Don and the Ukraine. In Siberia and Muscovites Muscovites styled all Russian, including Ukrainians, who lived beyond the Ural Mountains, that is in Europe. Katsap — even the mysterious word, it has odnoznaznogo interpretation, and that is because its origins are not clear, there is no reason to consider it insulting to the Russian. Similarly, there is no reason for resentment in naming Ukrainians crest, it is only figurative special emphasis inherent in Zaporizhia Cossack forelock — a lock of hair on his shaved head — the symbol of the Cossack honor. Just a stranger, a person of foreign blood and our education, may find such nicknames offensive. After all, no one hesitates to these names assigned to the Russian and Ukrainian names and does not consider its own name — Khokhlov Moskalev, Katsapenko — obscene, offensive.
Russian, Ukrainians, Belarusians — the essence of a people, as a Russian born from the root, half-brothers and brothers in faith. Adverbs Ukrainian (Little Russian), Belarus and Great differ less than the German dialects among themselves. Because both Russian and Ukrainians and Belarusians, remembering our relationship, we must be able to neglect the subtleties enemy of the Russian Unity and Russian forces trying to divide us and make mischief. Our formula for national division, universally expressed in the will of the Polish Russophobe Meroshevskogo should knock on our hearts, preventing forget that Russian, Ukrainians and Belarusians have one language, one race and one blood. That's what Meroshevsky bequeathed all everlasting enemies of the Russian people: "Let us take fire and bombs for the Dnieper and Don, in the heart of Russia, excite quarrels in the Russian people, that he tears himself own nails. As soon as he is weakened, we are growing stronger and grow. "
